Placer County Animal Services' mission is to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of the animals and people in our community. Through collaborative and sustainable partnerships, we strive to improve the lives of the animals in our care through community outreach and education, providing veterinary treatment and preventative care, reuniting lost pets with their families and ensuring positive outcomes through adoption, rescue or foster programs.

Animal Services Wins Statewide Awards
On November 28, 2017 Placer County Animal Services received Board of Supervisors' recognition for receipt of two recent awards recognizing the county's work to expand services to feral cats and neonatal kittens. The NACO (National Association of Counties) Excellence Award and the added status as one of NACO's 100 Brilliant Ideas at Work showcase the innovative programs offered that are geared towards helping some of the most under- served animals in shelters, feral cats and neonatal kittens. Through partnerships with FieldHaven Feline Center and Kitten Central of Placer County, life-saving resources were provided. For more information, click on this video link https://vimeo.com/219583657.
